The 10 Best Doctor Who Episodes, Ranked

10. "Fugitive Of The Judoon" Season 12, Episode 5

How can any Doctor Who fan not love "Fugitive of the Judoon"? Jo Martin's surprise character reveal was a shock I never saw coming,

9. "The Day Of The Doctor" 50th Anniversary Special

In "The Day Of The Doctor," a.k.a. the 50th anniversary special, David Tennant and Matt Smith's incarnations of the Doctor teamed up with John Hurt's recently-introduced War Doctor

8. "Vincent And The Doctor" Season 5, Episode 10

Doctor Who has its fair share of emotional episodes, though I'd say a vast majority of them work tears out of viewers by creating stories for its fictional characters.

7. "The Stolen Earth"/"Journey's End" Season 4, Episodes 12 and 13

This two-parter was the original mega crossover of Doctor Who, and featured characters from the show's past, the Captain Jack spinoff Torchwood, and The Sarah Jane Adventures.

5. "Listen" Season 8, Episode 4

Doctor Who doesn't do many horror episodes, but when it does it tends to get it right.

4. "The Eleventh Hour" Season 5, Episode 1

The premiere of Matt Smith's Doctor was a memorable one, as he meets a young girl, and finds a mystery, but due to a time error doesn't revisit either until over a decade later.

3. "The Impossible Planet"/"The Satan Pit" Season 2, Episodes 8 and 9

One can count on one hand the times that modern Doctor Who gave fans a story involving religion, and on one finger the amount of times Satan (or specifically a creature that might be Satan) has appeared.

2. "Silence In The Library"/"Forest Of The Dead" Season 4, Episode 8 and 9

It may seem controversial to some, but I believe that "Silence In The Library" and "Forest Of The Dead" represent the start of one of the best arcs Doctor Who has ever had: the story of The Doctor and River Song.

1. "Blink" Season 3, Episode 10

Some choices on this top 10 list could be controversial, but I'm fairly certain this one isn't.
